Texas Hold'em

Texas Hold'em is a variation of 7 card stud where players share common cards called "the board". The dealer position is designated by a button with the word "dealer" written on it. The button is moved in a clockwise direction after each hand to the next player. The two players to the left of the dealer position ante. These bets are called the big and little "blinds". Two cards are then dealt face down to each player. The player to the immediate left of the big blind must either call, raise or fold. Betting continues around the table in a clockwise direction.

Three cards called the "flop" are then dealt face up in the center of the table. These communal cards may be used by all the players as part of their hand. The player to the immediate left of the dealer may then check or bet. Betting continues around the table as before. A fourth card, the "turn", is placed face up with the "flop". Again, the player to the immediate left of the dealer begins the betting.

The last card, called the "river" is turned face up in the middle of the table. Each player now has 7 cards, the two face down in each hand and the 5 communal cards in the center of the table. The final round of bets begins with the player to the left of the dealer. The players then declare and the strongest 5 card poker hand wins. Duplicate hands split the pot equally. The house takes 5% of the pot.
